GLORIFICATION OF CHILD SOLDIERS 4 by 


War is such a tragic thing, and made even so more tragic when children are involved. Childhood should be a time for doodling and daydreams NOT war.

Tan Son Nhut, Vietnam, 1968. A twelve year old Vietnamese ARVN Airborne trooper who had been “adopted” by the Airborne Division, holding a M-79 grenade launcher. The picture was taken during a sweep of an Airborne Task Force Unit through the devastated area surrounding the French National Cemetery on Plantation Road after a day long battle there

    Love this collage, Tammera, and the child like doodles that color the background and overlay the piece. Yes, that’s what children should be doing— doodling, art projects, dreaming up the next airplane design, running, playing, not fighting for their country or village. Well done.

  • THANX EVER SO KINDLY DEAR FRANNIE..:)
